Description from D. Landreth Seed Company

Chantenay Long Type, Rouge Demi

Longue de Chantenay Developed in France in the 1830’s, this carrot has exquisite flavor. Roots are deep orange, approximately 5 7 in with tender flesh. Superb for juicing, canning, freezing or fresh.

The carrot grows wild throughout the Mediterranean and as far east as the Orient. The region around Afghanistan may have been where the first carrots, which were purple, red or white, originated. Yellow carrots were first recorded in Turkey in the 900s. However, it was not until the 1600s that the first orange carrot was developed by the Dutch in Holland.
